Hayman’s launches Exotic Citrus Gin

by Alice Brooker

London-based gin distiller Hayman’s has expanded its portfolio with the release of a new expression infused with exotic citrus flavours.

The new Exotic Citrus Gin is said to provide notes of kumquat, pomelo, Persian lime and mandarin, and 'lively, fresh citrus' flavours. Co-owner of Hayman’s Gin, James Hayman, said: “As the first London gin distilling family to include citrus as a key botanical, we are simply adding a delicious exotic citrus flavour to our style of gin. The additional flavour is naturally distilled from botanicals.” The flavour profile of Exotic Citrus derives from the hand-peeled and sundried fruit, Hayman's said.  The gin is made using a two-day process, whereby the fruit peels are distilled with Hayman's London Distilled Gin. Hayman’s Exotic Citrus is best enjoyed over ice with premium tonic water, and garnished with a slice of fresh orange and sprig of fresh basil.  The 41.1% ABV gin is now available to purchase through the Hayman’s online shop for RRP £28 (US$40) per 700ml bottle.
